Powered Sub or 10in pioneer?
 
Hello truckers,

Awhile back I upgraded my sound system to a kenwood HU and Kenwood speakers. Now I am looking into adding sum bass into the mix.

I am not huge on blaring music, but there are times when I work around the truck that I would like some power to the system. So...

Powered Sub such as:

Or

10'' sub and amp such as this:


I want it to fit cleanly under my rear seat. I see that the pioneer is very snug and may need some modification to make it look nice.

any input is greatly appreciated!

-Hunter

You didn't say what truck you had. I know that I was looking at both options and ended up with a box with 2 - 10" and amp for a little more that than the powered sub. I would rather have too much and turn it down instead of not having enough and wanting more.

I have a 2005 SCREW. What setup did you get with those 2 10's?

I had the Pioneer 10in flat powered by a smaller MTX terminator, running 214watts. There is a speaker box company in Clearwater that sells them through an ebay store and on their website. Brightstar Car Audio. Cost me about $85 shipped and they carpeted it in black. Fit very well and was built solid.

I didnt have a need for two subs, i just had one. The best option.....if you can find it, was the Rockford/saleen box that was optional on the S331 truck back in 07-08. Rockford used to sell them through an ebay store, i think they have all disappeared. Unless you find one with a Rockford badge and Pioneer flat woofer already in it...then its mine and was stolen out of my truck in 2011.....so, i had to get a new system :(

They are good peeps. They only had gray and tan listed, they said to buy the box on ebay and specify black carpet. Bought it on a wednesday, arrived on thursday!

The price is right. 10in would do fine, since you aren't after pushing massive db, rock the JL and a good amp. Just for price comparison sake, my flat pioneer was 105 new. Rock za JL :)
